My 100 year old great grandmother goes hang gliding at Wallaby Ranch. Malcolm Jones, the owner of Wallaby, was her tandem pilot, and did a great job. The video was shot and edited by the folks at Wallaby. Some of the wide shots are from their stock, but all of the close-ups are of Great Granny and Malcolm. I also tacked on some of the pictures my dad took that day. Backstory: a bunch of us had gone the weekend before for my mother's birthday, so we knew how gentle the tandem flights were and that the people at Wallaby are great. When Great Granny (who turned 100 in July) saw the pictures and heard about it, she said that she thought she'd like to do it.

Update 1/21/14: After an incredible and incredibly full life, Alice Dangerfield passed away on January 16, 2014. For her final birthday, in July 2013, she went canoeing at the age of 104. She never lost her spunk, and was surrounded by family and love until her time here came to an end. She has left us with a legacy of a life lived to the fullest and challenged us all to not settle for anything less.
